Buchanan... Making Midland
History Since 1904
Buchanan Refining’s new fully permitted, 11,500 barrel per day refinery located on the 7,000-acre Buchanan Ranch, ten miles east of Midland proper off of Highway 158, in the heart of the Wolfcamp shale play. Buchanan Refining will be able to offer to distributors and end users what has long been missing – a consistent, locally produced supply of high-quality Finished Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, Full Range Naphtha, and Atmospheric Gasoil.
Due to the refinery’s centrally-located market placement, low cost of crude transportation, and very efficient refinery design, Buchanan Refining is well placed to be the low-cost supplier into the Midland market. The refinery’s state-of-the-art design optimizes efficiencies, operates under the highest industry-standard safety measures, and due to the nature of the refinery’s crude supply, delivers more environmentally friendly solutions than many competing refinery sources.
The facility will cover thirty acres and will have tankage appropriate for a refinery of the proposed size. All of the necessary infrastructure to make deliveries via truck or rail has been included in the design of the facility. Up to three state of the art loading racks dedicated solely to ULSD distribution are being constructed with all the necessary roads, turnarounds, easements having been thoughtfully planned with our future customer’s needs in mind. Buchanan Refining has made a commitment to ensuring that its customers have the fastest turnaround time possible as we are well aware that lay times create unnecessary expenses for our customers. Rail deliveries can be accommodated via a third party provider conveniently located near the refinery. Additionally, the possibility exists for Buchanan Refining to offer major customers signage opportunities, specifically dedicated racks and storage to allow customers to better manage their inventory positions.
